Contagious But Organized

Erin Condren Planner

Ever have the type of stomach virus that renders every poor schmuck that comes to your door a potential caretaker? "I just threw up so hard toilet water splashed up and hit my face and I pooped in my shorts, what should I do?" I asked, holding a towel to my cheek. … [Read More...]

Do We Have To Put a Ring on It?

Wedding Ring

Andy and I have stopped wearing our wedding rings. I'm not entirely sure when it happened, and I wasn't even really aware of it until we went on vacation with a few other couples, and I thoughtlessly tossed my ring in the hotel safe. You're not wearing your ring? Nah. I never want to take mine … [Read More...]

If These Spanx Could Talk

Brittany in Spanx

We spent last weekend at a wedding for one of Andy's college friends, and it was one of those situations where he was in the wedding, but I was not, and that's fine. Seriously. The less I need longline strapless bras in my life, the better. They always start off okay, but by hour three, they're … [Read More...]

How To Assemble Furniture

FB Ikea

Yesterday I tried to put together a television console we had purchased for the play room. Nothing fancy, just an Ikea clearance item we picked up a few weeks ago that I was tired of Andy giving me the annoyed face about every time he tripped over the heavy box going out to the garage. I'm a … [Read More...]

Seven Days in Mexico

Tres Rios

As we sat on our canopy bed along the beach, sleeping under our straw hats and dark sunglasses, two thin figures stepped into our sun. They were young, maybe 20, with tan skin and spiky jersey shore hair and hands full of glossy flyers. Heyyyyy you wanna go to Coco Bongo? I'm sorry what? Coco … [Read More...]

Jellyfish Hands

The rash

Sometimes when I go to Mexico- and by sometimes I mean both times I have ever been there- I get a condition I call jellyfish hands. Basically I break out in an intense full body rash that makes my hands sting like I've been fisting jellyfish and I'm unable to use them as anything other than … [Read More...]

Sorry, America. I Can’t Quit You.

Mexico Days 1

I wasn't going to post while on vacation, first because Andy keeps giving me the mean face when I check my email, and two because Mexico and I are actually in a fight over the actual existence of wifi. I'm all, seriously Mexico, internet travels through the air now, stop being weird about this. … [Read More...]
